CHP helps leisure centre reduce carbon emissions

CHP, Shenton Group
Helping to reduce carbon emissions at Ryedale Leisure Centre in Pickering is a CHP unit supplied by Shenton Group.

Shenton Group has won the contract to install a Tedom Micro T30 CHP system at Ryedale Leisure Centre in Pickering. The company demonstrated to project consultant Preston Lee Chambers its ability to supply a compact and adaptable co-generation system and then provide design advice to integrate the CHP unit with the other systems in the building.

The new unit will help reduce CO2 emissions by over 70 t a year.

The Tedom CHP system is fully water cooled, so it does not need ductwork. Its compact footprint made it much easier to gain access to the small basement plant room than a standard CHP system.

The maximum electrical output is 30 kW, 3-phase at 400 V and a 0.78 power factor. Maximum hot-water output is 62 kW at 90°C.

Daily demand at this leisure fluctuates due to the performance of solar-thermal panels installed as part of the same project. The CHP system can modulate its thermal load profile to keep in step with demand, increasing energy savings by extending the use of the unit.

The CHP unit wil be maintained under Shenton Group’s Infinium24 programme that constantly renovates and re-engineers components before their projected replacement date.
